How do I stop screen from dimming in Linux Mint rafaella. When I'm watching video, screen dims after a few minutes. Thanks

Answer to the question

In a terminal you can enter the following: 

gsettings set org.cinnamon.settings-daemon.plugins.power idle-dim-battery false

The default setting is true, just bear in mind that the dimming is used to conserve power, and could affect your battery life when modifying this setting in say a laptop or mobile device.

Answer to the question

Try to change the option to "black the screen after 5 minutes" in the power settings or you can try to install the package caffeine. Caffeine is an extension that mantain the screen active.
